Bartron Medical Imaging, Inc.(BMI) was founded in 2000 by Fitz G. Walker, Jr. and is a Maryland corporation. It is a biotechnology medical device manufacturer with Software Development and Research & Design facilities in Maryland and Manufacturing in New Haven, CT. BMI’s flagship product, MED-SEG™, an FDA cleared medical device incorporates algorithms originally developed by NASA Goddard Space Agency and adapted by Mr. Walker for medical imaging, which allows regions of interest to be recognized with a clarity and specificity unequaled in the marketplace.
BMI is dedicated to the development of advanced image analysis and data mining for medical applications. We believe that the MED-SEG™ technology will be able to identify abnormalities before they are seen on traditional medical images. Also, we expect that the system will play an important role in reducing health care costs.
The system receives digital images via a secure cloud internet communication link. High-speed segmentation and regionalization is performed by a secure High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster and returned to the user. The user interprets the images and information displayed by the system.
Other BMI-patented or patent-pending IP has come from licensed and modified software from CalTech/JPL and the Kennedy Space Flight Center.
MED-SEG™ (which is approved for recognition as a Certified Space Technology) can allow information inherent in the image to become visible. This newly visible information can be used for the possible identification of pathogenic regions without image manipulation.
It is BMI’s intent for the technology to better enable the medical practitioner to gather more information from the same image.
BMI also has the capacity to provide services in storage, healthcare IT, data mining, and cloud computing and high performance computing.
